The international bandwidth provided by TANet is often congested. Although ministry of education tried to amplify the bandwidth, it’s still not enough to deal with the demand of users. In order to solve this problem, since January 2003, NCU and NCTU started to share international network bandwidth via UST network. Proxy servers had already been connecting international network using the bandwidth mentioned above, users only need to set up proxy to use this bandwidth indirectly, but if users want to use the bandwidth directly, then they have to set up VPN besides proxy. Currently, VPN service is already available for staff and students (but need to authenticate cc.ncu.edu.tw password first).
VPN settings instruction based on different OS please refer to 【Computer Center VPN settings】
Never hesitate to contact us if you have any problem.
